Start Anew with You Can Thrive!

a very special post Rosh Hashanah Tribute

When: Tuesday October 4th 2016 at 6-10pm
Where: Private Location

The You Can Thrive! Foundation is hosting a private tribute event on Tuesday October 4th, evening ending Rosh Hashanah. Friends of Mitchell Gaynor are joining YCT founder and integrative care expert Luana DeAngelis for a vocal tribute and therapeutic sound session held in memory of our beloved Mitchell Gaynor MD, the late integrative oncologist who pioneered the development & use of therapeutic sound in modern medicine.

This evening will mark the Jewish New Year, and is an profoundly moving opportunity for spiritual cleansing. This ceremony will help us to start anew on the right foot, so that we may release our grief and ready ourselves for the year ahead. This event is intended primarily for friends of Dr. Gaynor, integrative practitioners who are volunteers.
*We will make 4 spots available to donors for this one-of-a-kind experience. See below for $100 ticket that will go in full to supporting the Mitchell Gaynor Therapeutic Sound Fund at YCT.
